Water Festival

 

Annual Water Festival

 

The Water Festival is an educational festival designed to celebrate our local watershed. Every year, environmental education organizations from around the Bay Area come together at Guadalupe River Park & Gardens to teach local students important hands-on science lessons based on topics such as water conservation, pollution prevention, the value of water as a natural resource, and how people can affect their watershed.

 

Formerly the Water Wizard Festival, the event has drawn 300 students and their teachers annually to the park. The event is free to students, their teachers, and their chaperones; our generous funders allow us to also provide each school with a transportation scholarship to cover bus costs.
